Treating pain is a challenge and requires special approaches. This course will build on information provided in prior sessions and focus on the prevalence and impact of unrelieved pain, pathogenesis, and treatments of pain. Participants will learn about approaches and advances in therapy of common acute and chronic pain syndromes, and evidence-based recommendations for pharmacotherapy of pain will be provided. Pain Therapeutics examines current trends in pain relief, which can be implemented into practice as soon as attendees return to work.
